Beautiful colossus designs, beautiful world— just all around fine graphics— but the story really didn’t give me enough to get all that invested in it, and the obvious (best) part of the game- fighting the colossi— is overall pretty repetitive, regardless of having waves of decent puzzles and difficulty. 4.75/10

Frustrating, repetitive and too much artsy fartsy for me

The camera is atrocious and you have to keep fighting it. It's very frustrating. Wonder jumping mechanic is so awkward that landing or going onto a colossus is hit or miss. The ending was not worth going through all those frustrating issues. In all honesty giving this a 6 because of the improved graphics. If you haven't played this when it first came out on Ps2 like I did, I say play this for a few hours for an experience and put it away for who knows how long unless you can power through the issues.

It’s packing serious technical chops and doesn’t get in its own way, allowing the player to find their own path. The minute to minute activities are undeniably simple, but there’s obvious intent behind it – creating a tight and focused package that somehow lets the player feel truly free. It’s a remarkable achievement, even ignoring the 12-year-old core design.

The 2018 Shadow of the Colossus remake is one of the best looking console games to date, giving us stellar visuals and technical aspects unparalleled. The game’s overall aesthetic and vibe is one that will wisp you away to another place, and will leave you awestruck by the scale of its battles. Despite these stellar aspects, you may find yourself often frustrated at mechanics that bring down the overall experience.

Shadow of the Colossus is still a great game despite its game design becoming repetitive and the fact that some of its mechanics can be quite irksome. There still isn't a game out there that can match its dreary atmosphere, simple but effective storytelling, and outstanding boss fights. It's a one-of-a-kind game that still holds up and that PS4 owners should check out -- especially since it's only $40. It may be flawed, but it's another example that shows that truly great games are timeless.
